Best bits: Kate's doubts are definitely believable; she's dealing with childhood trauma and major guilt from being fooled into betraying someone she loved, so no wonder she has bouts of panic, avoids certain topics and places, and is quick to believe the letters are meant for some other Kate. All of this also makes her growth into a stronger, more confident woman of faith very satisfying. Emily's reactions to people and circumstances also seem realistic for a 7-year-old. I do like Jackson, too, though his character is sketched out a little less cohesively. Some very beautiful, wise bits as the characters deal with letting go of guilt, and forgiving themselves and others. Lovely use of Isaiah 43 as a recurring theme, and the poem and hymn that are repeated several times. We are called not to be comfortable, but to brave whatever circumstances God directs us to -- and He will uphold us, even in the trials. Pretty good proofing, just a few typos.
Issues: Too much trying to keep the reader guessing by withholding details -- several times I was left super confused because of that tactic, particularly at the very beginning and when she wakes up in her family home. Surprising the reader is good, confusing the reader, not so much. I wish Kate’s dreams/ flashbacks were in italics to make it clear what was what.
I was gifted this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
The author has created an admirable work of fiction that grabs the reader from the opening scenes, always leaving the reader with more questions than answers. Satisfying to the end.
